Liz Pearce from New Zealand here.
I have completed my prayer flags for the season of Lent.
I always used donated or recycled materials for my prayer flags.
I have even used clear plastic bags and these proved quite effective.
I would encourage readers to make a prayer flag using whatever is at hand ... don't make excuses.
Use found materials - paper, plastic, fabric, weed-matting ... go wild!
Use a glue stick or glue gun, if you can't find a needle and thread.
Use a felt pen and simply draw or write.
Let the prayer flag be messy ... loose threads can add texture and meaning.
Don't wait for 'good ideas' ... any piece of art that considers others makes the world a better place for each of us.
Don't judge or compare your flag with others ... you are a wonderful and unique you ... let it shine through your creation.
And enjoy the process!!!!
